If you’re looking to adorn your walls with eyecatching wallpaper, then there are some great contemporary floral wallpaper designs on the market. Here are 10 of our current favourites.
1. Sanderson Dandelion Clocks wallpapers
Sanderson Dandelion Clocks wallpaper
This bold floral design wallpaper from Sanderson’s Options 10 collection featured stylised dandelion flower heads.
Shown here in the blue, green and grey colour scheme, the paper is also available in red and pink shades too, but we’re rather fond of the fresh blue and green.
The colours and look are reminiscent of 1950s designs, but they’ve been given a fresh and contemporary look.
The Sanderson Dandelion Clock wallpaper can be purchased from John Lewis for £39 a roll. (Check out our other posts on matching Dandelion Clocks home decor).
2. Amy Butler Lacework wallpaper
Designer, Amy Butler, has created this gorgeous Lacework wallpaper, which offers a contemporary take on a traditional folk design.
The floral element is presented as bold round flower heads, depicted in a mandala style, with flowing leafy stems. The Lacework wallpaper is available in various colour options, but we love this blue and moss version.
The Amy Butler Lacework wallpaper costs £30 per roll from Graham and Brown.
3. Prestigious Radiance silver wallpaper

4. Villa Nova Florence Raspberry wallpaper
Villa Nova Florence raspberry wallpaper
The Villa Nova Florence range of wallpaper are available in a variety of colours, but we rather like this fresh raspberry shade.
Only the flower heads are raspberry, with the rest of the design a more subtle shade, so it’s not too overpowering on the wall.
The Villa Nova Florence wallpaper is available for £31 per roll.
